Uber Eats food-delivery robots set to enter use in multiple US cities

• New Atlas

According to Serve Robotics, over 200 restaurants are now participating in the Los Angeles pilot project. Additionally, in both LA and the company's home city of San Francisco, the autonomous sidewalk-going robots have "completed tens of thousands of contactless deliveries" since Serve's foundation in 2017.

In the just-announced expansion, plans call for as many as 2,000 of the bots to be utilized by Uber Eats in multiple other American and Canadian cities. Serve is currently working with industry partners and municipal authorities in various locations, although we've been told that a short list of possible cities includes San Jose, Vancouver and Dallas.
